Default Jags sign Jones-Drew - 4 yr /$32.8M

Don't get any ideas, Willie...



Jaguars agreed to terms with RB Maurice Jones-Drew on a four-year, $32.8 million contract.

The deal's annual average of $8.2M makes MJD one of the NFL's three highest paid backs.

Wow, that's a little much for him. I mean, the guy annoys the hell out of me every time we play the Jaguars, but I don't think he's one of the top 10 backs in the league, let alone top three.

I hope Willie does get ideas from this so he can go sign with the Raiders or some other team stupid enough to pay him that kind of money. He's pretty much just a waste of cap space to us at this point. The sooner his ass is out the door, the sooner defenses will have to stop laughing at our joke of a running game, and the sooner our offense can actually start living up to its potential.

I'll be surprised if Willie is still with the team in '10 either way....

Hate much? Waste of cap space? Get over yourself.

Willie can't run if the O-line don't block.

Dat's da name of dat tune.

Willie can't run when the O-Line can block either. He can run against shitty defenses, but that's all he does and that's all he's ever been able to do.

But we've been over this already. Suffice to say on the day he's finally cut or his contract expires, it'll give me the same feeling as when you get a cast off and can finally return to normal. Only in this case, you have to wear the cast for 4 or 5 years. Waste of cap space, waste of a roster spot, and if he got traded for a 7th-round draft pick I'd call it a sucker deal for whoever took him off our hands.

He's no fatback, that's for sure.

He can still bust the run outside, that's why teams fear him.

He got us a ring with the Longest TD run in Super Bowl History, so I can't complain.

That said - I wouldn't mind seeing Mendenhall take over the #1 spot and let Wille spell him when defenses are tired, but we'll see...

Yeah, I guess I'm never going to completely agree with a lot of people about Parker, but we'll just have to see what happens. Either way, we've got to start thinking about the future, and I hope Mendenhall turns out to prove he was worth that high pick...

i think mjd is a real good rb.. he can catch the ball out of the backfield.. and he has no problem hitting a def player right in the chest
